USCCB Launches Civilize It: Beyond the Debate Campaign

Conversation

Our political discourse has become increasingly rancorous and bitter. Spend any time on social media or watching the news and it is apparent that we are living in an era of outrage. The U.S. bishops began a campaign leading into the 2020 election to restore civility to our public and political discourse called Civilize It: Dignity Beyond the Debate. The MCC highlighted the campaign last year with a special episode of MCC from the Capitol with Archbishop Rozanski. This year, the U.S. bishops are again challenging the faithful to answer Pope Francis' call to seek "a better kind of politics, one truly at the service of the common good". 

Civilize It: A Better Kind of Politics encourages individuals and families to commit to seeking the truth, building bridges, and finding solutions together that promote the common good. Individuals can sign the pledge, and sign up to receive additional materials, by visiting the USCCB Civilize It webpage.
